Got a file you want to send, but it is too big for your email server?

Back in November I was trying to send multiple scans to members of my family. I ended up having to send each file by itself in an individual email because of the file size limits imposed by yahoo groups (the way my husbands family communicates). This was very inconvenient and frustrating! I really wish that I could have used File Hurl.

File Hurl is a site that allows you to send a file, without the retrictions of file size limits, to anyone you want. It is totally free. Only the people that you want to see a file will be allowed to access it. You can only send one file at a time, BUT you can zip multiple files together and send the zipped file.

It is super simple to send a file. From the home page click on "Hurl It" on the side bar. On the next page fill in the requested information (your name, email, email addresses of those to whom you are sending the file); click browse to chose the file from your computer; include a message with the file if you want and click "Hurl Away!".
